My husband and I stayed 2 nights, wish it had been longer. Staff were amazing, location is great. Great restaurant. Highly recommend this hotel. Only thing missing are balconies for each room but common areas suffice.

This Hotel is right on the beach. You can't get any closer. The rooms are adequate and the employees will do whatever they can for you. The food is good with other options if you want to eat elsewhere.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Nice room, comfy bed. Staff go above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay. The food is some of the best I have ever had with traditional and continental selections. We lucked in on Taco Tuesday with a band for entertainment

Despite Numerous Visits And Complaints To The Staff, They Continue To Not Fix Their Refridgerators and continue to serve warm beer ever since last year. Also be forewarned if you are using a credit card they won't let you pay in colonies 576/ US $ instead they use their own rate of exchange 500/US$ this means you are paying an extra 576/500= 15 % for every dollar you spend there.

Room 212 (or 211)!!! Balcony views, spacious room, clean bathroom, air conditioning, beach towel service. There is a $10 charge for this room but it is worth it. Great location. Right in front of the beach. Can you ask for anything better?! The bar/restaurant is right downstairs, there is nice artwork in the hallways. Luis the bartender is very professional! Would stay here again :)
